Safety Council to Open $6 Million Hands-On Safety Training Facility

October 3, 2016 - The North Dakota Safety Council is breaking ground on a new 23,490-square-foot, hands-on safety training facility in Bismarck.

“This is a chance for us to bring training that’s not currently available here,” said Chuck Clairmont, the council's executive director.

Clairmont said research shows “blended learning” with both classroom and hands-on exercises helps with retention: “It’s a much more memorable way to learn.”

So users of the NDSC facility will be able to work on actual scaffolding for scaffold training, there will be a 26-foot tower for falls and confined space training, and trainees can be drilled on rigging and flagging and lockout tagout in real-life environments.

Up until now companies have sent workers to other states, such as Texas, for this type of training, according to Clairmont, who said another benefit will be the ability to partner with experts in different training fields. For example, Texas-based Roco Rescue, a leader in rescue training, helped with the design of the 26-foot training tower and will send some of its employees to use the Bismarck facility.

NDSC also has plans for training people on trenchers, cranes, scissor lifts and other heavy equipment. Much of this will start outside, but the organization aims to eventually build a 5,000-square-foot indoor arena for year-round equipment training.
